Year 2

Our topic this Spring Half Term is Space.

The children will be reading and exploring a range of carefully chosen text which was used across the curriculum to support the teaching of our topic of Space this term. These include- Laika, Mae Among the Stars, Curiosity: The Story of a Mars Rover and Counting on Katherine. As writers, we wrote a discussion, a biography and an explanation text where we will use our SPaG skills to add detail to our writing. As mathematicians, we will investigate Carroll diagrams, tally charts and pictograms, expanded addition and subtraction. As historians we will be learning about the achievements of Katherine Johnstone, one of the first African American mathematicians to work at NASA and our art is making secondary and tertiary colours in art as well as refining their painting skills. We will focus on the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh and will finally replicate a piece of his work! Computing this term is all about programming and algorithms; meanwhile, our scientists will investigate the properties of everyday materials.
